Regularly check that safe working condition is obtained prior to working. ensure that they will be inspected and certified by qualified person.5.  Prior to using any machines/equipment at site.  Periodic Preventive Maintenance will be made on all equipment and machines. This is to control occurrence of injuries as well as damage to equipment and properties during the entire construction period. on the site or on the adjoining vegetated areas. waste matter that may falling down during transportation. workmen and safety of the public.  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE including mask gas filter type) will be issued to all workers such as safety shoes.  Barricades/Signs will be provided sufficiently and maintained. construction debris. the safety measures will be implemented as follows. barricades will be equipped with suitable reflecting material. There will be no dumping of garbage. waste.

8.0 Quality Control Measures  The procedure to be followed is set in Hyper Project Quality Plan.. cable rollers are to be used at frequent intervals to support the cables and must never be more than 3 meters apart.  Rollers must be used where cables are installed in an open trench using a pulling rope and eye. During installation operations. Transporting vehicles. will be monitored to prevent overloading and over-filling 7. etc. Competent personnel using suitable tools will carry out cable pulling and cable laying.01) Procedures CABLE PULLING  Where bends in conduits are encountered in a run. These conditions shall be strictly adhered to. Care must be taken to ensure that the cable does not enter or leave the rollers at an angle 6 . the cables shall be lubricated with a cable pulling lubricant. e) Warning signs to be positioned adjacent to cable laying area f) Personnel to be instructed in cable pulling technique 9. particularly where cables turn into road crossings.0 9. cables must not be bent to a radius of less than 12 times the overall diameter of the cable. Any potentially dusty material being transported from work sites will be secure ly contained. conduit entry. to facilitate drawing in. etc.0 LIST OF HAZARD & PRECAUTIONS 1) HAZARD a) Cable Drum Falling b) Trapping injuries c) Manual handling-back injuries 2) a) b) c) d) PRECAUTIONS Personnel to wear suitable PPE when cable pulling Cable jacks to be of a sufficient capacity and placed on even surface Damaged cable drum not be used. petroleum based products are not acceptable.

to stop the winch from moving with subsequent uneven pulling of the cable.  The pulling rope must be equipped with a swivel and be attached to the cable by a stocking grip with pulling eye.  During pulling there is a tendency for cable slack to accumulate on the drum. The cable shall be drawn into the trench smoothly with a minimum of stops and at an average speed of between 9-12 meters per minute. When pulling from large drums.  The cable shall by manually. then it should be watched during pulling to ensure it is not damaged.02 CABLE LAYING  The drum should be mounted on jacks. a check should be done to ensure that the drum-spindle is level and permits even rotation of the drum. The rollers are to be placed securely to prevent movement. cable trailer or cable stands such that the cable is preferably pulled from the top and always in the direction opposite to that indicated by the arrow. from the drum to the trench on a suitable ramp. care must be taken to avoid other utilities' equipment.0) RISKASSESSMENT 7 . the cable should be supported to prevent stressing the cable. before the pull commences.that exceeds the bending radius of the cable. which may exist below. lighter cables may be laid by mounting the cable drum on its side on a truck-mounted turntable and laying the cable directly into the trench. 10.e. cables can be rolled directly into a trench from the drum mounted on an excavator moving along the trench. to avoid irregular movement. i. it is advisable to tie a rope to the drum end.  To limit the chance of damage to the cable prior to removing the cable drum battens. Pulling through drum end prevents buckling and possible damage to the inner coils on the drum. Before driving any spikes to secure the rollers. slack shall be avoided and one possible method to achieve this is to limit drum rotation by using plank brake shoes against one or both flanges of the drum. and pull through any slack cable that appears.  Alternatively. over 2m in diameter. 9. If the inner end of the cable on the drum end protrudes through the side of the drum.
